I love when I straighten my hair- it doesn’t happen too frequently though, since it takes a long time…and I’m lazy. But when it’s straight, I can run my hands through it, and brush it, plus it looks more red! (I imagine that’s because my curly hair creates shadows, and the mousse I use darkens the color a bit too).
I wore this in mid-January (yea, my pics are a bit old!) on a field trip with my third graders. I took them to see one of our local symphonies perform…we go every year and it’s always a fantastic trip! I encourage the students to dress up too 🙂
(The big bag is necessary on a field trip to hold inhalers, EpiPens, parent contact info, etc.)
The cuff bracelet you see above is another handmade creation. I die cut some faux leather to create the circles, then stitched it randomly onto grey fabric. Once it was all sewn, I added metal snaps to adhere the two ends.
Gaahhhh…I love this necklace! I bought it sometime last year, and was actually a bit worried I wouldn’t like it because it is so big- but I’ve worn it about a million times since then! My students love it too! 🙂
